Hinterland in The Herald – ‘Satirical comedy Hinterland sparks deja vu’

Thank you to Ken Longworth for this great article on Hinterland, our upcoming senior play.

“AUSTRALIAN playwright Matt Cameron’s concern in the early 2000s that prime minister John Howard was ignoring the needs of the people led him to write a satirical comedy, Hinterland, that had a working-class man banished to a hidden place for voicing opinions that weren’t to the government’s liking.

While Cameron set the play in the 1950s, the situations it shows have present-day audiences laughing because they reflect the way that people see governments acting now, ignoring promises they made in election campaigns.”
